A Plague Tale: Innocence is the brand new own-IP title from Asobo Studio, bringing their veterancy in game development to a moving story of adventure and bonding through the darkest hours of history. In today’s Story Trailer, see just a glimpse of the heart-breaking tale of young Amicia and her brother Hugo, on the run from the Black Death, a plague of rats, the Inquisition, and worse besides. Today also marks the beginning of pre-orders on all platforms for A Plague Tale: Innocence.

The story begins in the Kingdom of France, as the Hundred Years’ War and emergence of the plague start to take a toll on the population. The De Rune family lives a still-peaceful, sheltered life in their castle and surrounding lands, but it can’t last…

Amicia and Hugo’s journey will take them to incredible places, some indescribably horrifying, others hauntingly beautiful, and many a mix of the two. The people they meet, and their fates, will shape their story – and it is unlikely either sibling would survive without the other. As they grow closer, the world gets harsher, and that bond becomes ever more vital.

Pre-orders are now available for digital and retail on consoles, and digital PC, for A Plague Tale: Innocence. Digital pre-orders come with extra coats of arms for Amicia and Hugo, while retail ones have additional benefits depending on region.

A Plague Tale: Innocence releases May 14 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
